islamist rebels in the african country concerns are growing over how the conflict is being fought human rights groups and a pan and activists are raising the alarm over the information blackout on the number of civilian casualties during the french led intervention and the western backed troops are now being increasingly accused of war crimes now in the towns liberated by the french army there is also a growing sense of revenge the food filmed by an amateur cameraman apparently shows a mob attacking and mutilating the corpse of a young man whom the crowd suspects of links to islamist local reporter told r.t. about atrocities reportedly taking place across the country. as we continue moving north we find reports of extrajudicial killings and evidence of war crimes that what we have heard of the murder of a few citizens by molly and soldiers in the town of survivor not only did they kill them they shove their bodies into the drinking water well located in the center of
the town making the rest of the population watch we're also hearing of cases where people are being prosecuted for trying to earn a living under the ruling militants sixteen year old adama says it was unknowingly employed as a cook. is now being accused of terrorism. after i stopped working as a cook in the town of u.n. so i went to survey where there i met an old man and i asked him for a drink of water he said that he won't share water with terrorists i said that i was in a terrorist and i was just the first down then i was put into prison i am no terrorists i don't even know that i was working with militants i only realized that the rumors i started hearing them and then when everyone went on to the frontline i was just cooking food for them no one even talked to me i think us occasion was also reportedly becoming widespread in the area arabs ensure access to be persecuted on charges of allegedly collaborating with the militants in the government and the
french troops are fighting against our contacts in timbuktu also told us that shops belonging to arabs are being looted a lot of a host international consultant and former deputy speaker of the belgian parliament says he's not surprised by the developments in mali. what i hear now is how this surprises me i mean that first of all the million army does hold a grudge against people who are lost some from the northern part of the country and secondly the soldiers of very low paid and at very little movement etc as a they're not really a regular army in that sense there's only. hardly a state apparatus functioning how can you really just have people and examine what they do you can't you just ground nic underlying that so the only thing you can do correctly is if you think people might be terrorist is hold them and arrest them and detain them what you certainly will do is see this kind of action judicial executions but it totally surprises me that this is going on right now this country
needs support yes this country needs are moved why is it that this help only comes in the form of military invasions that's a basic question usually should us concepts. and there are also fears of sectarian revenge attacks in mali following the french led military campaign more on this as well as images from the conflict torn country on r.t. dot com. syria says israeli jets have carried out a deadly bombing raid on a sara torrie destroying a military research center near damascus at least two people are thought to have been killed and five more wounded in the attack while israel has refused to comment on the incident western diplomats and syrian rebels claim israeli forces targeted an arms convoy near lebanon's border our disposal here has been following the developments. the syrian army has said that israeli jets crossed into syria below the radar level at dawn on wednesday and hit a military research center near the capital city of damascus now according to the
military they carried out and i'm quoting an act of aggression bombarding the sites causing large scale material damage as what is destroying the building and that was a statement that was quoted on syrian state television the military also added that two site workers were killed in the strike now earlier there were reports that israeli planes had struck a convoy carrying weapons from syria to lebanon the information actually came from the united states as well as regional officials but these reports would later denied by syria. as a q. and a tour of pan-african newswire says the alleged israeli air strike in syria is all part of a plan to bring down the assad government. it's quite interesting that the israeli government as well as the united states has not officially responded to this provocation against syria so it is inevitably a situation in which they are opening up a nother front in the war against the government of bashar al assad part and parcel
of a broader strategy part of that strategy of course has been a deployment of patriot missiles in turkey which is also a nato country on the border with syria and then of course with the airstrikes this is designed to create a sense of encircled that in regard to the syrian government i think that the syrian government and those who are want are seeking a negotiated and political settlement to this crisis you know very well that this is only designed to weaken the syrian government and that it will not be successful because in the long term on the ground the syrian government has maintained the military initiative against the various a rebel organizations who have been funded now for nearly two years to work havoc in south of the country in an attempt to overthrow the government of bashar al assad in egypt the ongoing turmoil has claimed more lives with at least two people shot dead during fresh clashes between
protesters and police in cairo stuck for your square deadly violence has led to the opposition calling for talks with president morsi but the islamist leader has rejected the call for an ounce mccain during more his visit to berlin where he was warning german chancellor angela merkel hoping to get investment a plan to visit france next but return home empty had a blogger and journalist while iskandar says if morsi had received european backing the egyptian public's outrage would have only increased. i think the public the public will be very upset if foreign countries start lending a hand to president mohamed morsi while he is executing these very oppressive measures against his people he has cracked down on a lot of freedoms sidelined editors arrested people and justly and i think that. the sentiment in egypt is basically a rejection of mohamed morsi and the monopoly on power that he that he has and this
not so much as mohamed morsi he's he's viewed here as a puppet to the guidance bureau so unless he starts taking control and actually doing steps taking the country forward towards a democratic transition i think people will not be pleased otherwise. now coming out this hour absence returns to the battlefield once more policemen lawns and tear gas hundreds of protesters stormed greece's labor ministry over pension cuts. and virtual kidnappings ransoms for your idea and cyber terrorism that's only a glimpse into the future of the internet according to a top boss at google. play
mission. critical patients free storage free. range month three. three. three. three board video for your media project c.e.o. don carty dot com. welcome back you're watching our team the u.s. senate is gearing up for a potentially heated confirmation hearing for the new the fan secretary chuck hagel candidacy is widely viewed as president obama's most controversial pick for
a key pose during his presidency the decorated war veteran stance of seeing military force as a last resort and pro israeli foreign policy as a track to both admiration and criticism while the latter has been far more vocal arches get a check out reports. chuck hagel has been under attack since his name was floated as president obama's pick for the defense secretary position it would see attack ads on all major u.s. t.v. channels saying what a terrible defense secretary chuck hagel would be all throughout december and much of january they've been running these ads you know between commercials of beauty products prescription drugs and so somewhere between those you could catch attack ads like this one secretary of defense chuck hagel president obama says he supports sanctions on iraq voted against the legal voted against labeling iran's revolutionary guard a terrorist group and while president obama says all options are on the table for
preventing a nuclear iran says military action is not a viable feasible responsible option president obama or secretary of defense chuck hagel is not responsible option. that ad was sponsored by the emergency committee for israel so what did chuck hagel do to deserve that as a u.s. senator chuck hagel has been critical of israel's policies he's been critical of the israeli lobby in washington here's what he said the political reality is that the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here i've always argued against some of the dumb things they do because i don't think it's in the interest of israel i just don't think it's smart for israel and of quote among other things chuck hagel dared to say that u.s. interests should trump israeli interests if they conflict he supported direct negotiations with iran and unlike many other politicians here in washington who keep repeating the all options on the table mantra but these publicly they say that chuck hagel has been straightforward in saying
a strike on iran should not be an option and he has also been a proponent of a more even handed u.s. policy with regards to these really palestinian conflict and the u.s. has been anything but even handed on the issue it's also for statements like this one that he's been under attack take a look this is chuck hagel in two thousand and six the united states will remain committed to defending israel our relationship with israel is a special and historic one but it need not and cannot be at the expense of our arab and muslim relationships. that is an irresponsible and dangerous fault choice some saw president obama's decision to nominate chuck hagel as his message to these really hard liners we actually heard president obama say there is too much war talk going on and maybe nominating chuck hagel is his way of bringing down the tension and not not everybody here in washington likes that
message but what's interesting since the beginning of the attack campaign against chuck hagel over these two months or so many of the attackers have sort of withdrawn their objections over chuck hagel nomination some say could be because they were. behind closed doors that as defense secretary chuck hagel is not going to make any drastic moves to really challenge washington's foreign policy orthodoxies now from nomination in the beginning of january to the confirmation hearing we've got plenty of opinion and analysis of his candidacy on our web site r t v dot com.
